Energinet has awarded Corinth Pipeworks an onshore linepipe contract for the Baltic Pipe project.
A joint venture (JV) between GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and Energinet, the Baltic Pipe Project is an in-development natural gas pipeline that will run between Denmark and Poland, including a stretch under the Baltic Sea.
Corinth has been enlisted to provide pipes for the onshore Danish portion of the pipeline, with an order comprising 142 km of 32 inch (812 mm), 36 inch (914 mm) and 40 inch (1,016 mm) submerged arc welding length (SAWL) and submerged arc welding helix (SAWH) steel pipes.
The 47,000 t of pipe will be coated with three-layer anti-corrosion polyethylene, epoxy lining for flow assurance and bends.
Corinth was previously awarded the manufacturing contract for another section of the project in 2019.
Last week, it was announced Italian company Saipem would construct the Baltic Pipe Project, winning a contract worth approximately €280 million (US$303 million).
The first works are scheduled to commence in the second half of 2020, while vessels preparing the seabed for pipeline installation will mobilise in the Baltic Sea in the first half of 2021.
The EU has committed about €265 million (US$286 million) towards the project and has held a status of a ‘Project of Common Interest’ since 2013.
